Logging Precautions East Side
Blue Hills Trail - East Side - February 2022 Logging Activity
March 21, 2022
Logging of a small timber sale began February 24th near the East Side trailhead, and was completed March 8th.
This logging only minimally affected the ski trail at the five spots where the logging equipment crossed the ski trail. We have repaired those crossings, but the base at those sites now is quite thin. Slow down and choose to either cross very carefully, or remove your skis at those sites.
The three formal snowshoe trails that start near the warming house are impacted. The 'Rolling Oaks' snowshoe trail is closed and will be redesigned this fall; the 'Ridges' trail has a minor detour; the 'Nordic Pines' trail has a small detour. New trail signs will guide you. Look at the two maps below as a reference.
